expertise to the pier 70 wide effort and they will be assisted by emily wisk who is also with the office of economic and workforce development. so in closing, i wanted to talk previously about some of the areas that will really benefit from coordination with city departments and in the ability that economic and workforce developments have to bring in and make it easier for work with other city departments. we are going to be one of the key issues related to the development of pier 70 obviously is the historic pier preserve vasing. we have been working on the draft of a nomination and an application and it is the pier 70 can eventually become added to the national register of historic places. and that is going to involve working closely with the planning department, historic preserve ation and the staff and the state historic office and others. but, honestly, oewd will play a key role in bringing in the city departments into those negotiations. >> public trusts, they are, pier 70 is a patch work of trust and non-trust lands that will need to be realigned to make for implem
quickly repair and reteb ant the pier 38 bulkhead and two, respondent to this rsp process may submit to a master tenant to accomplish the repair of the building with no obligation to address a long-term redevelopment scheme for pier 38. under this master developer approach, this would allow an entity to propose a plan that would not trigger seismic upgrade and these leases are typically ten years in duration. alternatively, a respondent to the rfp may submit to a master developer which will allow a development entity to repair and tenant the bulkhead first and then demonstrate their qualification to undertake the long term development of pier 38 if deemed feasible. under this amoefp, the respondent will have to influence the repair of the bulkhead building first and then demonstrate their qualifications to develop all of pier 38. if deemed feasible. the commission would consider long term pier redevelopment proposal at a later time and these are typically 50 years in duration. and then with regards to the physical appearance of the pier shed. the master tenant would have to be

of pier 70. pier 70 is a pretty old, dilapidated facility. it was not obviously built for this function. the port of san francisco has notified us two years ago that they are pursuing development on that facility. at some point we would need to vacate the facility. while, you know, as of today that's not imminent, because of the time it takes for us to transition a big operation like this, we need to plan. we can't wait until the development is imminent and then kind of scramble to take our way out of the due diligence we have to do to either purchase or lease space and the city processes we have to go through and all the steps. it takes time. so once we were informed by the port of this need to move, we started the process of evaluating alternative sites. that both i think are reports and subsequent info but the budget analyst's report speaks a little of that process. some of the sites and challenges in finding space this big in san francisco that was available and suitable and reasonably priced. and really what we found is there are very few, if any options out there that can serve th
is that the center of a lot of the activities moves over to pier 2729 f, for me it is a easier area to serve by transit. one of the legacies that we have seen in august is the historic street car that was running from cal train north along the water front all wait to the warf. there were 8700 people that as i understand the feedback, rode that service, that could be a permanent part of san francisco's legacy if we work and if this works out well for moving people from ball games, let's say to the ferry building, to the warf. they will be riding that service again in october and look at running it again in 2013. other programs that we hope to use cliper card even more. comprehensively, having all of the transit providers accessible by one simple card and so that a tourist does not have to dig in his pocket and get in those cars and large numbers out before they get to san francisco. those are the campaigns through next summer. the jefferson public realm we are tracking that to make sure that it is under construction and that it isn't in the way of all of the pedestrian ans that are coming. bu
and happy items to report on, starting with milestone update on our pier 43-1/2 project. you may recall that that is part of the bay trail and lays atop the seawall in fisherman's wharf between where blue and gold sweet calls and the san friscan restaurant. constructing a new waterfront concrete promenade from powell street to the franciscan restaurant. our contractor there is vortex marine. they have been working rather diligently including saturdays most of the last month and will continue to work saturdays through thanksgiving with the goal of completing the project to substantial completion by thanksgiving. so far, 92 two-foot wide diameter concrete piles each of which are 100 feet in length, support the new wharf deck and that deck will go along the promenade there and come around behind the franciscan restaurant replacing old deck that has been condemned sometime ago. in addition and very importantly, over 500 feet of the timber seawall has been replaced with reinforced concrete wall and rock armor stone. this is a very important project for that area of the waterfront. on octobe
of pier 70. what we're doing is rehabilitating the six buildings, the office buildings, the two on the northern side will be used as office and doing different things that the steel company did but used in the same manner and this power house building to commercial use and the south side of 20th street extension of the economy in the area right now and light industrial, arts and recreation and the things that are making that a cool hot new area and we can accommodate that growth. we think this will be jobs for 400 to 500 people. one of the things to recognize this project is important to the port for quite a while. a decade ago we were in contract with other entities to do this and tried to make this project happen. we carry $109 million in the capital plan to do these buildings. we have a project before you today where the orden development group would take the lead and invest their funds and realize this. one of the reasons -- the high level reasons we think this can succeed at this point. one is we brought the capital costs down for a number of reasons and one is the sp

. this process was initiated because the current 13 acres site where the mta's operation exist at pier 70 is planned for development work, but also to another extent because of the space at pier 70 is not increasingly a space that is ideal for the operational needs of the mta. i think there were a lot of really great questions that were raised by the committee members, but also i think supervisor campos was at one of the meetings with us and raised a lot of very legitimate questions. some of the concerns that were raised i just want too flag for folks, had to do with the mta's long-term space and planning needs. the mta's operations are very extensive. the mta was able to come back and share with the committee its final real estate and facility analysis. they were currently finishing up a draft and were able to share that information with us and plans to present a fuller conversation around that facility planning need and the results of analysis and consolidation recommendations in the future. so that is something that is coming before us. i do think that the mta shared with us what thei
the boats that will be docked on pier 30-32 and along pier 80. we also have over the past few years done, i think, the remarkable job of practicing what we preach because the humanitarian role of our military is one of the most important roles that they can play and all over the world. and for us in san francisco to experience it right down to the very neighborhoods that we have who want to learn what it is our relationship -- how do we work together when a huge disaster might befall us, that is why i'm excited for some of these new aspects to keep rolling out every year. we've done all the other things that major cities have done. we have invested in technology. we've got great websites that ann cronenberg that the vest have embraced with our he can knowledge jai partners. we have the learn sf that i'm personally on. i receive those messages religiously of anything that might happen. of course, with critical mass this week, i was on that cell phone all the time to see whether or not anything in the city was out of character that we really had to make sure we covered. but all the other even
